Remember that Intel ICH3 card with the ACPI BIOS
problem? Rofl, it isn't really fixed..
See, yesterday when it was working.. I was
amazed. When I got home from work it wasn't
working.. so I retraced my steps.
See, I work at an ISP. I was downloading some of
the FreeBSD ISOs to setup a remote kgdb machine
on a box I wasn't using at home.
Apparently the 300KB/sec traffic or so was
generating a lot of pci interrupts which made
the card go fine. When I'm downloading a huge
file really quickly sound works good.
When I move my mouse around a lot sort sort of
When I don't do anything not hooked up to the
net, sound barely works. I get those PCM
interrupt timeout messages on dmesg and choppy
sound. Just as before.
Sorry about the false positive report. But maybe
this will help. I think i'll set up some ddos
tools and dos my box during the day so I can
listen to music, rofl.
Now, the laptop that has this card does not have
a serial port.. so as far as the ICH3/Yamaha
goes I can't remote kgdb it.. but is there
anything from ddb that I can do to help you? I
have that setup and working.
